Description

Windy Lake First Nation is hosting the annual Trappers Festival, and the four Mighty Muskrats are excited about the sled-dog races and the chance to visit with family and friends from far and wide. But during the Teen Sled Race, the lead dog is the victim of a frightening accident that may be more than it seems.

Between mysterious strangers seen lurking by the trail and a loud group of animal rights protestors, the Muskrats have a lot of suspects. Despite the chill of winter, the case is heating up for Sam, Otter, Atim, and Chickadee!

Editorial Reviews

"What an adventure they have, finding themselves in many dangerous situations with many supporters offering help... A great mystery to help us build our curious minds. Kids can make a difference."

Goodminds

"The best feature of these books is the delightfully natural quality of the Muskrat characters. In both dialogue and action they come across as loyal, intelligent, funny and extremely realistic."
